My little golfer
Brayden was so excited that with all the fundraising events for Arkansas Children's Hospital, my company was so gracious to share a ticket for him to get to golf at the Will Golf 4 Kids fundraiser. Brayden LOVES to golf and has always seen these golf courses but never dreamed he'd get to play on one of them. He was excited about the gala - but SUPER excited to get to golf with the big boys on the awesome 18-hole golf course! It was a BEAUTIFUL day and the greens were so awesome that early in the morning. Brayden took it all in - the geese were so neat too & the squirrels that are afraid of NOTHING and expect to be fed!
He got to try his hand at the golf cart and was a pro within a short time. He looked so great during his game and, in scramble style, our four-some group played off of Brayden's ball many times! Again and again, he was having great hits and was closest to the pin. He did so great but kept wanting to play through versus stopping at par. It was great fun and I loved his enthusiasm. Each hole had a sign about Arkansas Children's Hospital and there were a couple that were of special meaning for us.
We're so appreciative of all the work that goes into this event each year. It was remarkable to see the organization and all the steps at play and so many that it takes to pull off an event such as this one. We're so thankful for ACH and for all those who play in the event each year and contribute. It was neat for my little man to see so many out golfing and working to raise money for all the kids at ACH and he didn't take one minute of it for granted!
